  • Drag Strips that you've been to?

    OK, I've been thinking about this, every now and then there will be a thread that asks something like "how many cylinders do you have" or "What is the longest you've kept a motor" and I can't compete in any of those so I thought I'd come up with one where I would at least have a chance at placing in the top ten so here goes. I'll list only the Drag Strips that I've actually raced at but listing the ones that you've been to counts also, my advantage over most of you is I've been around a long time! I'm guessing I'll get whipped by Brian, Chad, A-Fuel and hard telling who else but here goes!

      Remy-Z, you've outdone yourself again, I thought a Mirada was the icing on the cake of rodding, but this Imperial is the spread of little 99-cent candy letters spelling out "EAT ME" on top of that cake.

            that is a lot of dragstrips.
            I have only been to one and raced at it.
            a little one called winterport dragway in maine.

            jets had my ears then too, 1994.(I still do not know if my eardrum would pop like a grape today either).

            it seems loring will be my next attempt at seeing and hearing loud machines.
            3...2....1....What happened!?!!

                  I think we did this once before, and I'd have to think about it for a bit. So for now I'm just going to post a pic of some of the National events I've been to back when they used to give out real tickets. Not the computer print outs you get now.

                      OK, I didn't know this had been done before, don't know how I missed that? I'm guessing that with your crew chief duties you've probably been to more strips then I have anyway.

                        Oh I don't know, your list is pretty impressive. You have to let me know the next time you go to US 41, I live about 20 minutes away.

                          Not many for me, and havent been to a strip since 05, but here is the list.

                          Kearney Raceway Park, Kearney Ne
                          Scribner Dragway, Scribner Ne
                          Cooper River Dragway, Goose Creek SC
                          Dorchester Dragway, Charleston SC
                          Darlington International Raceway, Darlington SC

                          I picked up a friend at Jackson on the border of Georgia and South Carolina one night, but didnt race there. Just drove the truck there, loaded up his 99 Z28, then rebuilt his glass jaw ten bolt two days later.

                          Ive gone past Topeka, but couldnt stop to walk around, no races that day. Hope to get a few more on the list in the near future. All of them were close to where I lived, either growing up or stationed there. I never had the time or money to take off and race 1000+ miles away. Someday....
